How Does Christ Lutheran Church Impact My Life?
Mary Hubert, Member
The first Sunday I attended Christ Lutheran Church, was the first Sunday going to church without my beloved Fred. Gretchen Jeffers greeted me and told me her name. I said I was Mary Hubert and she asked if I was Pastor Fred's wife? I said yes and she said, "Oh, I loved that man!" Naturally that brought tears but also a heartwarming feeling. Soon another lady came in (Barb Starkey) and we sat down and talked and I gave her my history. She said she worked with Stephen's Ministry, and asked if I would like to receive the literature on grieving? I replied, “Yes, for sure I would.” I needed all the help I could find. Barb sent the booklets to me each quarter with a note. We became friends and now we are sharing the same walk, which is not an easy one.
All of these experiences have been very rewarding to me this past year, but volunteering at LCFS is my passion! The need is great, frustrating at times and I ask, "Lord, what can I do to reach these boys?" But I go back because I care! I am sure I could cite other highlights but you don't need a book or even a chapter. Above all and everything are Pastor Steve and Ann. At one time Fred and I talked about moving to Zionsville to attend Christ Lutheran Church because of Pastor Steve. Didn't hurt he was also from Sheboygan and a Packers fan!

Paul and I were truly overwhelmed with the outpouring of love shown by the congregation during my long recovery (from surgery); the flowers, food and oh so many cards and well wishes!!!!!! We have been blessed in many other ways at Christ Lutheran Church: the small group (that is getting bigger and bigger) we belong to has wonderful, faithful people in it; the dinners are always excellent and we all enjoy the evenings once a month!
We love the beautiful music that we enjoy from so many talented people; and we are regulars to the Bible class discussions. We love the Tuesday evening Great Courses a small group of us is participating in with Pastor leading! I participate in Gretchen's Book Club and Ann's Bible class, both of which I am missing while out of town. I've loved being a part of the Service Ministry for many years!!!
